    Good morning Liz:

    Thank you for your most informative, interesting mail. I’m sorry that I never knew of him or his works, sounds as though he was quite a man. Artwork that consists of quick land, water and seascapes are my favorites (as I’m such a nautical person that many of my decor at home feature nautical themes, especially outside of the house.) I enjoy showing off God’s work and the beauty of the world as God has given to us in art form by talented artists, just as probably Bob Ross did. And his soft spoken voice in this video, I thought was because he didn’t want to frighten the baby squirrel. Maybe he wasn’t a famous artist like Monet or Picasso, but guess what? Apparently he still was a famous artist according to the posters on here. Thank you for the information, if there is a place on the internet where I might research and review some of his work would you please advise me? I would love to see it. Wow, how old was he when he passed on? And when and how did he pass on? Not that it’s such a significant piece of information, but just informative to me. Many thanks again. Have a beautiful day!

    Lola 🙂

      Lola, I am not sure if there is a site, like , but when you find a site, put in Bob Ross, in the search box, if it doesn’t show him as a contributor, I don’t have a clue where to find him, unless you just google his name.
      When the stations would have their “drives” to raise money for their station, he would always be their promoting his show, and offering gifts or CD’s of his shows, etc.
      Take care, and happy searching!!

    I’m so sorry that I never heard or knew about this man. Surprises me because I’m into art, and for me to never hear about this man except on here, well..I wish I knew more. I’ll try to go to the art gallery and find more information on him when I feel better.

      Hi Lola, I don’t think you’ll find his work in a gallery, as he was more of a teacher of painters. He made quick land, water and seascapes, while gently teaching us on PBS stations. He appeared to have been an old “hippie” with semi-long (but curly), hair, and a very laid-back, soft spoken, and gentle way of speaking and living. He was very talented, but not a “great” artist, like Monet or any of the other’s.

    He was such a kind, gentle spirit, and a special artist. The world has lost a great man.

    I’d watch him paint and be so relaxed when he was done. I miss him a lot.
